Re: be cautious traveling to Juarez

We have a national (US) manufacturing technology magazine - we've been asked repeatedly by customers to start a Mexico edition - we actually looked into it ~20 years ago and saw that we would have to have it printed/mailed from Mexico, bribes here, there, etc....so, flash forward to now, more customers wanting this.....NO THANK YOU....I've got a buddy who routinely works down there and the stories...wow...my life is worth MUCH more than the little bit of extra revenue we'd make - our main competitor did start a Mexico edition - their editor is based out of Colombia...go figure....so, it's really a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul, i.e. - the companies (advertisers) are still spending around the same total dollar figure, they've just shifted some to Mexico....now, if I had a bodyguard detail 24-7, if I was armed, armored vehicle, etc....maybe, but I really don't think it's worth it....for me anyways.
